The Life Nature project: "Natura 2000 Sites in the Piatra Craiului National Park"
The project’s objective was to improve the conservation status of habitats and species in the Piatra Craiului National Park through a series of strategic interventions involving data collection, public awareness, updating the management plan and designating five Natura 2000 sites on the park’s territory. The project contained specific provisions for applying targeted conservation measures in the proposed sites. In addition, the project aims also to strengthen the capacity of the Park’s management team in the Natura 2000 network knowledge, and to distribute the information gained about Natura 2000 among the interested specialists and the general public.find more...
